This map, based on the 2010 census data, shows the largest religious groups in each county of the U.S.
While the Catholic Church is the largest religious tradition in more counties than any other group, the Southern Baptists are a close second and are a majority in the vast majority of counties in the s0-called Bible belt.
Take a moment to review the map. Look at where you live now and the places you have lived in the past. Does what the map shows match your experiences of those places? What about of other areas within the United States?
Do you expect the map to remain relatively stable over the next decade? Why or why not?Tweet
